NVIDIA's (NVDA ) share cost has been reach destined for more than over two years, yet the company is starting to show signs of recuperation. NVIDIA shares have acknowledged as much as 16% since the company conveyed spectacular quarterly results as of late.

NVIDIA's earnings came in at $0.32 for every share, beating the Street estimate by $0.14. On the income front, analysts were estimating a 3% drop in sales, however NVIDIA topped expectations by conveying a 3% sales increase. The quarterly execution was without a doubt impressive, however does the chipmaker have something more to offer? We should figure out.

Picking up footing In the PC market

NVIDIA wants to give Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) a run for its cash in the PC market. NVIDIA as of late propelled two new Gpus called Maxwell that are based on its Kepler building design and rival AMD's Radeon R9 270. Despite the fact that the Maxwell line wasn't a huge jump send in terms of speed, it outclassed Radeon in terms of force consumption.

Maxwell comes in two variants that are accessible at a much lower cost than Radeon. The two variants are evaluated at $119 and $149, respectively. AMD, then again, is selling the Radeon at a cost of $179, and this is not anticipated that will change at whatever time soon.

AMD's GPU prices have been increasing because of cryptocurrency mining, and its clear that NVIDIA will revel in a value advantage in the foreseeable future. Actually, AMD's approaching Radeon 280 is relied upon to be valued at $279. Such a massive distinction in cost can unquestionably mark AMD's hopes of picking up piece of the pie in the PC segment, which is at last an enormous tailwind for NVIDIA.

Vehicle infotainment systems might be development drivers

As per IHS, worldwide sales of vehicle infotainment systems in 2012 stood at $34.6 billion, and the business was headed by Panasonic.

IHS noted, "Together, new and established players much the same are building fresh equipment and software architectures, designed especially to permit cell phones like smartphones and tablets to interface with in-vehicle infotainment systems."

This business presents a tremendous open door for NVIDIA, as IHS predicts that auto infotainment systems sales could twofold by 2017.

NVIDIA is positively interested in attempting its fortunes in this business sector. Prior in January, Volkswagen's (VLKAY) Audi brand advertised that it will be revealing NVIDIA's Tegra Visual Computing Module, or VCM, to power three of its new in-auto systems. Furthermore, Audi also guaranteed that it will be using NVIDIA's Tegra K1 portable processors to power its future guided driving initiatives. The Audi A3's infotainment system is now controlled by NVIDIA's chips, while BMW dashboards have a futuristic digital display fueled by NVIDIA.

On the off chance that NVIDIA's partnership with Audi is successful, it may even think that its route into other Volkswagen brands. The German auto titan shipped more than 9.7 million cars in 2013, and the success of this partnership can give NVIDIA a huge boost.

Conclusion

NVIDIA's latest products have been impressive, and its business has turned around in the past few months. The company's future looks splendid with its new GPU and opportunities in auto infotainment systems.
